The Trudeau government is pushing the narrative that white nationalism is a dire threat to Canada and the world. According to Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland, “Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, ‘incels,’ nativists and radical anti-globalists who resort to violent acts are a threat to the stability of my country and countries around the world.” The prime minister and other cabinet ministers have echoed similar messages over the past month.
It’s a dangerous pattern this government has displayed in playing identity politics. The Liberals are singling out and magnifying the infinitesimal minority of “white” Canadians who are extremists, all while ignoring or even covering up the extremism coming from minority groups, such as removing “Sikh extremism” from a government report on terrorism.
All but one Democrat in the House of Representatives (and at least two Republicans) have signed on to a bill that would force schools to allow male athletes who identify as women to compete on women-only sports teams even if they have a clear statistical advantage over female athletes.
The Washington Post obtained a form that Warren filled out in April 1986 for a legal license in Texas which showed that the Democrat signed the form and, in her own handwriting, wrote that she was “American Indian.”
In a statement released today Justin Trudeau said that former Burnaby South Liberal candidate Karen Wang’s statements were “unacceptable”.
Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg will be directing his first musical — a remake of the 1961 Academy Award-winning classic “West Side Story” about a Puerto Rican gang facing off against a white American gang on the streets of New York. Fearing a potential backlash, the director recently met with students and faculty at the University of Puerto Rico to hear their perspective on how they should be represented.
On the surface it appears Canadians are sick of each other.
In 2018 there were talks of separation, tensions boiling over unfair transfer payments, massive public rallies, opposition to development and a mini-trade war.
But the problem isn’t with the people; Canadians are united. The problem is with politicians. A core role of government is dispute avoidance and resolution. Yet, politicians are ducking accountability for their failures on this front and pitting Canadians against each other.
The establishment media are warning Democrats there will be a racial and gender test in 2020 and hell to pay if the Party nominates white males.
Those initiatives include protecting trans constituents from “anti-trans Trump administration policies,” passing federal legislation to protect the rights of LGBT people, focusing on HIV/AIDs treatment — particularly in communities of color — and supporting asylum claims from queer people around the world.
Many fire departments recognize that their lack of diversity as a problem and say they’re committed to increasing racial and gender diversity.
They have become the very thing they claim to despise.
Speaking at a “My Muslim Vote” rally in Dearborn, Michigan, Ocasio-Cortez asked activists to send Michigan Congressional candidates like Rashida Tlaib and Fayrouz Saad with her to Congress and declared, “2018 isn’t the year that we get our first Muslim woman to Congress… it’s that we get our first class of Muslim women.”
The WSO was contacted last summer by several Sikh passengers who were told that their kirpans were not permitted on BC Ferries and must be stowed in their luggage. The WSO contacted BC Ferries and provided information on the significance of the kirpan and about accommodation policies in other settings such as trains, courthouses, stadiums and buses across Canada.
Ahh the slippery slope of religious accommodation.
As we mark the hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War, it is clear that the moral wounds it inflicted on Western culture have not healed. Recent incidents, such as the rejection of Remembrance Day poppies by Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU), or Southampton University Students’ Union’s (SUSU) threat to paint over a mural dedicated to war heroes, are symptomatic of the sense of malaise and confusion regarding the memorialisation of the First World War.
The minister stressed these are symptoms of a student ‘monoculture’ which assigns people an ‘identity’ and tells them they cannot comment on anything else. He insisted labelling people and putting them in ‘silos’ is damaging because it stops them speaking freely.
Michael Moore said on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Thursday that angry white male high school graduates should just give up politically because they’ve been running the show “for the last 10,000 years.”
Imagine the perfect political and intellectual weapon. It would disable your adversaries by preoccupying them with their own vanities and squabbles, a bit like a drug so good that users focus on the high and stop everything else they are doing.
